The attached video excerpt from a complete version sold by TMS describes the Hall-Heroult process using both animations and industrial footage. It then begins a description and comparison of Soderberg and Prebake cells. The latter - which are more prevalent in commercial smelters today - can be found on the full video.

The full video is available for $95.00 in the TMS Document Center, under "Web Events, Workshops, Videos and Software," on the TMS web site. Go to TMS Web Site.
